I’ve recently produced some lesson plans and resources relating to Socks Are Not Enough and Pants Are Everything. They’re for a range of fun, creative lessons based on the texts, and include things like court-room drama lessons, agony aunt/uncle letters and a House of Commons debate. They’re all tried and tested and (relatively) professionally planned (I’m a teacher and everything!).
They are available on this site, as well as, to download free of charge from here.
